Buddy's BBQ Race Against Cancer

  • World's Fair Park 1060 Worlds Fair Park Dr Knoxville, TN, 37916 United States (map)

BUDDY'S Race Against Cance is a 5K walk and run* that raises funds for Thompson Cancer Survival Center's Cancer Outreach Services program.

In 2013, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the BUDDY'S Race Against Cancer. Since its inception, the race has raised $5 million for cancer education and care in East Tennessee. Thanks to BUDDY'S Race Against Cancer supporters and participants, thousands of medically underserved individuals have received life-saving screenings and information each year. Unlike some fundraisers, proceeds raised by the race go to fight cancer locally. Through prevention, early detection and education, we are saving lives. Come walk or run with us!
